Lion Downloads Top One Million

Lion, the latest iteration of Apple’s OS X operating system, is off to a great start. On Thursday afternoon, the company announced that more than one million copies were purchased and downloaded during its first day of availability. “Users are buying Lion faster than any other OS release in Apple’s history,” the company said in a statement.

Impressive. Recall that Apple sold two million copies of OS X Leopard during its first weekend at market, and that OS was distributed on optical discs sold online and off, not exclusively through the still quite new Mac App store.

I think the NSA has a job to do and we need the NSA. But as (physicist) Robert Oppenheimer said, “When you see something that is technically sweet, you go ahead and do it and argue about what to do about it only after you’ve had your technical success. That is the way it was with the atomic bomb.”
